Last weekend, the first JoomlaDay Denmark was held in Kolding.
The event gathered 150 Joomla enthusiasts of varying ability to explore different subjects and socialize.
Brian Teeman and Nicholas Dionysopoulos were there to give presentations, and were asked by the organizers to prepare a short presentation on what's coming in Joomla 1.6. They gave a 15 minute presentation called "Joomla 1.6 - a date with the future", and the result can be enjoyed in this post.
Highlights from the presentation
New features in Joomla 1.6
- Access Control List (ACL)
- Redirect module
- Language specific content
- Unlimited nested categories
- What does it take to move from 1.5 to 1.6?
